When I was a kid, I was a big reader. Sorry – I wanted to say "nerd".
I was a big nerd and didn't care about sports.
Still, I saw the Green Bay Packers play every Sunday because we did it in my house. I usually had an open book at the same time.
Because of this ritual, the sound of a soccer game on TV is cathartic to me. I'd rather turn on the NFL network than listen to an app with white noise when I want to do my job.
So I'm still turning on Super Bowl LIV. I enjoy the connection to the rest of the nation – while turning off a blog post and working through a novel.
If you're in the same boat, use the day to make extra money. Just take a break and watch the halftime show so you know what everyone's talking about on Facebook on Monday.
Try some of these ways to make extra money as your family or roommates gather around the TV this weekend.
